Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment Fish & Wildlife Development Fund Award

Value$5,000 each
EligibilityThe Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment is now accepting applications for the Fish and Wildlife Development Fund (FWDF) Student Research Awards.
With funds derived from hunting, angling and trapping licence sales, the Fish and Wildlife Development Fund (FWDF) acts to acquire, protect and manage fish and wildlife habitat in the Province of Saskatchewan for the purpose of sustaining fish and wildlife populations, their habitats and the ecosystems they support. Since 2001, the Ministry of Environment has supported student-based research projects that impact management and conservation of the province’s natural resources through the FWDF. More than $325,000 has been awarded to help students conduct research relevant to the management and conservation of our province’s plants, fish and wildlife.

Projects should be focused on any aspect of the management and/or conservation of Saskatchewan’s plants, fish or wildlife, or their habitats, and should align with the FWDF Strategic Plan. The fund has identified three management goals concerning fish and wildlife:
  1. Maintain natural habitat through conservation, biodiversity, land management and awareness of rare species.
  2. Maintain and grow sustainable fish populations and their habitat.
  3. Maintain game populations and ensure accessible hunting.

Students may receive an award for a maximum of three years per degree. The student is responsible for re-applying each year to seek continuation of award.
